Please participate for the photography project “The Game-Keeper’s Jam Cellar” documenting the rooms of elderly people.
Target participant: People who are age of approx 70 + yrs old and let their room to be photographed.*We are not looking for a specific type of room. Visiting from a normal room to unique room and just talking to the people itself is important for the project.
I often work with local community including local governments, private organizations, business organizations, religious organizations; organizations of all kinds, any community who has a network in the community depending on the country. I believe no matter what channel I go through, the picture itself speaks what it speaks. I work very flexible and try to respect the purpose of the organization as much as I can. I usually have meeting with the mediator and explain my project and sometime join their activity as an observer if it is necessary. I believe the trust and understanding is very important to realize the project.
Target of photo shooting: Only inside the room
*The owner of the room will be not in the picture (only in the case when the participant wishes, a portrait photography can be taken and give it to the participant.)
*No need for cleaning your room for the shooting.
